A '53 Mercury...here's one on Wilshire near San Vicente in 1961, CA
For all you Greenies the "Original Solar Cloths Dryer" in the back of some magazines of the 60s "Solar cloths dryer guaranteed to work 19.95 S&H included to lower 48" What you got was a Hank of cloths line and 2 packs of cloths pins! Roughly 6$ worth of stuff !
One of my favorites. Some guy recreated it but more blue in color....said it took him something like over 2 years to get the back window correct

This is the old hiway sign on I-40 in eastern Arizona near Sanders. Not sure how old this pic is, guessing 60s, but, not sure. I think the sign was erected in the 1940s or 1950s. It is still there but has been defaced. I am working on getting this old sign restored. If anyone else has pics of this sign, or knows how old it is, please let me know.
There aren't a lot of old hiway signs like this around anymore, at least, not around here. Am doing what I can to preserve parts of 'old America'.

Unfortunately, this is a modern photo of the parking lot at the McDonald's Museum on Lee St in DesPlaines, IL.
Looks like Karen Black, from Easy Rider and Five Easy Pieces.
Her name was Nancy Kovack.......

I meant on the other side.
Wow does this bring back memories! We still have two pieces of gear in our family, that we built back then, shown here.
I'm pleased when I see the few Milwaukee automobile makers on the thread. Seaman made bodies for Lafayette (Nash), and many other makers including Petrel, another Milwaukee make. They got their start making furniture and phone booths. Interesting history.
X2, they are great cars.
We have established that it is Nancy, Donna, Sue Ane. None of the three look like Karen Black, who was also very attractive
Heathkit O-scope from '65 still works.
Bottom of the Salt River Canyon in Arizona.
The roadway, hwy 60, was carved out and put through in the early to mid 30s. This pic I found at the Gila county museum appears to be from the late 1930s or early 40s.
We will be exploring the area on Wednesday. There are many car wrecks and old mines and more to see in this area. It is very, very pretty and like a small Grand Canyon that you can drive through.
I am still lovin' this thread.
I noticed 2 things: there sure were a lot of dirty cars, and there were a lot of Cadillacs - even random shots in parking lots had many.
Here is another shot of hwy 60 about 60 miles closer to Phoenix than the Salt River Canyon. This bus just went through the old Claypool tunnel and is heading roughly west towards Superior.
Since this tunnel was closed in 1952 I would guess it is close to that time.
That is quite a drop off on the left!
A Little Dab Will Do Ya!!!
